Hollywood Wax Museum Makes Charity an All Year Effort
LOS ANGELES (December 23, 2011) - Charitable giving isn't just a holiday initiative for the Hollywood Wax Museum in Los Angeles, CA. The organization makes giving back a year-round effort. In 2011, the top-rated Los Angeles entertainment attraction donated 2,116 tickets, a value of $37,982.00. Over the course of the year, 614 charitable organizations received tickets in 2011 from the Hollywood Wax Museum.
"Supporting charitable organizations has been part of the Hollywood Wax Museum philosophy since my grandfather opened the museum in 1965", says Tej Sundher, Hollywood Wax Museum owner. "Our popular Los Angeles attraction has given back to our community for over 45 years and will always be a year-round priority. The organizations we support truly make a meaningful impact. Gifting the experience of fun and entertainment at our Hollywood attraction means so much to us."
Some charitable organizations that were beneficiaries of the tickets included:
- A Special Wish Foundation, Inc.
- American Heart Association
- Boys & Girls Club
- Hollywood Arts
- Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA)
- Oasis of Hollywood
- PADRE Foundation
- Special Olympics Southern California
- Wheels for Humanity
- Fisher House
One of the beneficiaries of the free Hollywood Wax Museum tickets, Fisher House in Los Angeles, provides housing for the family member of Veterans while they are undergoing long term care at their VA hospital. When families who were staying at the Fisher House came for free, it was a big hit with them. "The families have been so thankful for the opportunity to take a break from the otherwise very stressful time of having someone hospitalized," says Sundher. "Giving the gift of entertainment and fun to help make a nerve-racking time less stressful is what entertainment is all about."
In addition to families at Fisher House, the Hollywood Wax Museum has also hosted families from Make A Wish Foundation and Give Kids The World. Helping these families have a true Hollywood experience is what the Hollywood Wax Museum is all about.
